    HMS Daring Gun error...

    Well... yes, although I'm using other sources than wikipedia, it's... just the same as I read and said. So... yeah. Thanks ?

    HMS Daring Gun error...

    Well, if I'm not mistaken, historically Daring guns had a bore diameter of 4.45", which makes precisely 113.03mm. Now what did WG do in their game, that, no-one cal tell except a WG employee.

    Rate of Fire

    Halland, Veinte de Julio, Almirante Riveros and the likes are state of the art. Of course historically they arrived at the end of the era of their kind, but nonetheless, definitely not obsolete amogst gunships.

    RELEAAAAAASE THE SWEDIIIIIIIIISH ! http://www.navweaps.com/Weapons/WNSweden_47-50_m1950.php And for those who're still hungry for more, here a birtish gun used exclusively by Chile. http://www.navweaps.com/Weapons/WNCHL_4-62_Vickers.php Long story short : 25rpm is FAR from the maximum. Some good guns from the 50s achieved between 40 and 50rpm. Just because "nowadays US standard main naval gun" doesn't exceed 25rpm doesn't mean nobody has never done any better in that very specific field.

    You have answered your own problem. The editor does not save what you write every second and thus you couldn't expect to refresh the page eleven times while writing. While I can understand that you'd tell me I should always refresh before posting, I can also tell you that you should not post a message which isn't entirely written and expect readers to wait for an edit that they cannot even guess you intend to do. Also : I am curious regarding what you're referring to. After all, as far as I know, the only domain in which google translate would be entirely and utterly useless would be... litterature itself. But this is no reason to laugh at the practicability and power of the tool, no matter how horrible the actual, literary result is. Naturally people who are focused on the exactitude of a language would do so, yet this is forgetting language, before being pretty and detailed, is a mean of communication to convey general ideas and information. And if in specific, technical, or highly important or cirtical contexts, a translator akin to google translate would cause more harm than anything else, a context where the point is simply to converse, exchange general opinions, or simply share general facts or points - which is the one context on a forum, and to some extent the context for the whole internet, which basically transmit general information around, there, th tool becomes incredible when in the right hand. But obviously, if you're camping on an academic point of view, there's not much else to be said about google translate.

    My apologies, but I cannot comment on something you note only if you note it via an edit after I have answered. Besides that : This is the one logical and (for me) acceptable reason not to bother trying to translate his message. But saying it's solely because google translate is bad, is not.

    It's hilarious but it's not that bad if you know how to use it. Google translate loses itself within the grammar and sometimes fails to translates correctly words that have multiple meanings. It's not a good tool to learn or translate in detail. However, when it comes to understanding the meaning, or even specific parts of a text, it's incredibly powerful. I mean, I don't speak a word of spanish (appart from Què) and I was able to understand in point... rather well, and not only in general. I noticed that when I started dwelling the internet for obscure papership designs. Most of the details can only be found in sources that are of the same language as the nation they come from. As such, despite only speaking two languages, if I wanted to gather all the infos I wanted, I had no choice but to explore websites in japanese, russian, portuguese, dutch, spanish, swedish, german, greek and god knows what else. Had google translate not been there, all these sources would have been unavailable to me. You might answer that I could have learnt the languages, but while it's true for one or two, I certainly would have had a hard time learning all 8 and more of them without counting in decades. I understand all the hate and fun poked at google translate, but the fact stands : back when this tool (and the likes) didn't exist, there was absolutely no way or quickly understanding a text in a foreign language other than translating it word by word with a dictionnary which takes ages. Now that such tools exist, no matter how badly inaccurate they may be, it's possible, and despite the fact that they're far from perfect, that's a HUGE progress for international communication and data gathering. So yeah, when people say "I don't use google translate cause it's bad at translating" I get pissed. Sure, it's bad at its job, but until you speak the language, it's better than you, and considering how incredibly powerful the tool can be when employed right, it's a bit infuriating to think that someone actually managed to devellop it so that it can convey the meaning, at least generally, beyond the language barrier, only to be laughed at because it's "not good enough" by people who, usually, don't even bother learning foreign languages (not that I'm saying this last sentence applies to you, this is more of a general feeling, but even if you speak 17 languages, google translate can still creat a way of communicating where there used to be none in the few others you don't know)

    ... naming&shaming isn't allowed. And I doubt there's favoritism regarding illegal mod usage or cheat. Also : Què ? What are your reasons ? Just curious. I can think of one good reason why you wouldn't bother, but it's not necessarly obvious you're thinking of that one.

    Les nouveaux Porte-avions

    Mais ya aucun préjudice subis. Si demain TrashGaming décide de fermer boutique, mettre la clef sous la porte et clore tout ses serveurs, les gens pourront aller pleurer auprès de n'importe qui, ils ne reverront jamais la couleur d'un seul centime qu'ils ont mis dans les jeux. Ca n'est ni un achat ni une location. Les 40 balles que tu balances t'achètent le droit d'utiliser un certains contenu tant qu'il existe, et si la boite décide de le modifier, de le supprimer, ou de le rendre gratuit du jour au lendemain, ils sont dans le vert. En quelques sorte, c'est comme si t'achètes un pass d'accès à vie pour un manège. Si le manège ferme ou qu'ils le rendent moisi, t'as rien à dire, tout ce que t'as acheté, c'est le droit d'accès. Demander compensation c'est normal, mais invoquer je ne sais quel loi pour en exiger, c'est faux, et c'est à ça que je répondais.

    Critique Saison "Sprint Classé" à venir

    Mais c'est ce que je te dis, je ne pense pas que ce sois le modus operandus de WG que de créer une offre qui ne payera que sur le très long terme.

    Critique Saison "Sprint Classé" à venir

    Mais comme je disais c'est dans la ligne directrice de WG : si ça ne rapporte pas de manière évidente (et à un relatif court terme si je puis ajouter), alors il n'est pas intéressant d'y mettre des millions, mille, ou même un seul centime d'euro. La (très large) majorité de la playerbase s'en fout du compétitif alors on investi rien, ni d'argent, ni de temps, dans le compétitif. Commercialement logique. C'est de la logique base, sans second ou troisième degré, sans prévision à très grande échelle, parce que je ne pense pas que WG vive à très grande échelle temporelle. Mais ! C'est de la logique quand même.

    Critique Saison "Sprint Classé" à venir

    Je ne pense pas que ce soit le problème. Même dans les commu très orienté esport, il y a une part non négligeable de la playerbase qui... n'en a pas grand chose à carrer de regarder les matchs de haut niveau. Et même pas par refus d'apprendre, simplement parce que c'est pas une activité qui intéresse. Sur Wows, la playerbase est pas ultra-énorme, et son quartier compétitif/esportif est quasiement inexistant par rapport à la taille. WG n'a aucun intérèt de pousser ce genre d'event tant qu'ils n'ont pas la preuve que ça impliquera une part non négligeable de gens et pour l'instant... c'est pas le cas. Ca rejoint la ligne de marche de WG. Que ce soit bien ou mal, gentil ou méchant, moral ou pas on s'en fout : c'est commercialement logique.
